Hello all, I have a really fat wether. He is the best goat ever, he just is a pig in goat fur. He is a pygmy, so he is also a wizard at getting out of pens. Nearly all the other goats I have are his children and he doesn't like them much, he is also the boss of the herd so he pushes others away from the food pans. But he is getting to where he is walking, er, waddling and I can't figure out what to do. He is bright-eyed and seems to feel ok, but his walk. Oh dear. His hooves are in decent shape and he is utd on CDT. They all have free choice good quality hay and some browse, and I give them a pelleted food. I have been bad about giving him 'treats' but I have stopped that. It has been really cold and rainy here the last couple of weeks so none of them have been moving much, but the sun and warmth are back. He used to run around with the herd but now he just follows them. Any suggestions, barring starving them all? The other goats are nice and round pygmies, very lively and happy.
